(Note: NVC is an abbreviation for Nonviolent Communication, a fluid, ever-evolving language process created by Dr. Marshall Rosenberg. It is also sometimes referred to as Compassionate Communication, and is based on universal human feelings and needs, the giving of empathy and making humble requests rather than demands.

NVC innovators like Robert Gonzales and Susan Skye have pioneered a new way of viewing the unmet needs that tend to be surrounded by so much pain. They suggest that if we focus our attention inwardly to the needs themselves, then it is not so much about having our needs met, but more about having a “meeting with our needs.”
To commune with the living energy of the needs themselves, is to see the beauty in our basic human nature. Those universal needs, met or unmet, are part of what makes us human, part of what connects us to all humanity. Those needs can never be taken away from us, even when they are temporarily and painfully unfulfilled.
If we take this a step further to actually meditate deeply on the beauty of the needs within us, even when they are painfully unfulfilled in the outer world…we then become more vibrationally attuned to those needs. In that state, we are more likely to attract the people, places, things, situations, etc., where those needs can more easily and naturally be fulfilled.
